AgBarrier Brings Energy Efficiency To The Farm

Sealant Technologies knows that farming is a tough business. This is why since 2005, AgBarrier has been saving farmers with a durable air barrier sealant. After thousands of projects in the that are in the ground and continue to save money year in and year out.

Making money on a farm has never been easy and now with higher energy costs to deal with there is the challenge of not knowing what it will cost to keep your building heated or cooled. Also, unlike any other industry, the cost of energy is a major part of the operations budget that must be paid for year in and year out. It’s obvious that energy costs go up in the winter time which is when most farmers have to deal with much higher fuel costs, but what about in the summer?

So as a farmer, how much money are you spending each and every year for energy? Is it $1000 a year? Perhaps $10,000 a year? Maybe even $100,000 a year? How much are you going to spend in 5 years? How about in 10 years? The costs are staggering to the American farmer and while this was not something that had to be dealt with in the past, in today’s economy, these energy costs could make the difference between making a profit or seeing a loss this year.

While it may seem like a lot of work, energy savings will pay for itself in a very short period of time. For example, a 50′ x 500′ foot building with a 1/4″ crack in it in a three-mile-per-hour breeze with an inside/outside temperature difference of 80 degrees Fahrenheit would take three gallons of propane per hour to just heat the air leakage. It is easy to see that just by stopping up a small crack or joint in your ag building can add up to huge savings.Also remember, air carries water so here is another way that water can penetrate into your building. This is where an air barrier can provide a tremendous return on your investment.

So you want to save money on your energy bill on your farm, but how can you do that without paying a lot of money? Great question, because farm buildings have some very unique characteristics. First of all, they are generally large structures. Many of them are older so they were not designed with energy efficiency in mind. Also, most are built from a variety of materials, including steel, wood, plastic and cement. Finally, whatever material you use to make them energy efficient needs to be built for the incredibly harsh environment that exists on the farm.


One thing that all of these buildings have in common is that they leak. Mostly they leak air, but also these open cracks and joints allow for water, insects, rodents and the outside conditions to come into the building. All of that means that you are loosing energy, sometimes a lot of it. This is why sealing a farm building is the #1 way to achieve energy efficiency. If you can seal all of those cracks and open joints, you can put a lot of money to your bottomline.
